P r o c e s s:
The underpainting is done with watercolour. This is really tricky for few reasons. 
It took me a considerable amount of time to work out the canvas maker that is suitable for the effect. For the paint to give me these beautiful semi translucent washes, the cotton has to be the right grain and correctly primed. The underpainting takes very little room for mistake and even now sometimes I scrap the canvas and start all over.
There is very special fast drying medium used to cover delicate layers with the right amount of thin oil paint and to make the pigment more fade resistant and prevent from any yellowing. 
This stage is repeated many times to build the satisfactory depth. 
I then go with a tiny brush to go over the edges and borders, adding definition with acrylic. 
Final two - the signature, usually on the front (but some paintings I leave unsigned on the front till they are sold, so the buyer can cast his/her wish to see my surname on the front or back of the artwork). And [ta-ra!] the paper planes connected a thin thread which they tied up to each other or the clouds. 



S t o r y 
The Migration collection is intend to capture the subject of departure focusing on positive effects of separation, leaving, breaking ties. 
The paper airplane is a faceless portrait of a traveler, explorer and a pioneer. 
Object with simple light emotion bringing back the carefree childhood moments and playfulness.
Imposing or sometimes enveloping this directive element with the clouds I strengthen the message to emphasise the scale of ever-changing terrain around us. 
The clouds  are big and strong. Paper planes to the contrary — small and fragile. 
Not suppose to fly that far or high these little vessels,  just like we are, found themselves redefining their limits. 
Also the detail that connects paper airplanes comes from my Connected series on paper. 
Visual form showing companionship is found in every journey we take.

Yuliya artistic talents started to forge from a really early age as she spent hours in the after school classes experimenting with media and receiving classical art training. She grew up between the leafy hills and lakes of Northern Kazakhstan and industrial Caspian coast town where she was born in 1980. In turbulent times of post Soviet collapse her future was decided in favour of law studies. So artistic development had to be slowed down. Only 15 years later Yuliya was able to return to art looking for meaningful engagement. Since 2015,  she showed her work as independent and with the gallery, was part of international established art fairs and shown with alternative gallery spaces.  Her work is well sold on all the major online platforms and found its way to movie sets (Marvel for Doctor Strange 2016, ABC for Scandal, 2017), have been shown in members clubs, stylish London hotels and fine dining venues, acquired by interior designers for yachts, cruise liner, international resorts and held in private collections world wide. Yuliya is known for developing collections filled with elegant flow and ethereal glow. She explores idea of fragility and strength in her sky scapes,  isolation at sea in dreamy sail boats coastal series, urban crowd dynamics in Connected works on paper and most recently cyclical nature of florals in her 2024 Blossom collection. With each of them focusing on delivering a dreamy side of an elemental realm, the body of works at large filled with weight free emotion effortlessly filling the viewer with light nostalgia. fall involve with me on instagram: @y_martynova_ where i show my life, my work, my beautiful house, daughter and occasionally a hiding hubby
